Marion Cotillard arrived at the 87th Annual Academy Awards in an interesting white couture dress.

Cotillard, who always stuns on the red carpet with her modern silhouettes and individual style, didn’t disappoint at this years most important cat walk. The Inception star, wore a white textured couture Dior dress with one small detail that sent waves across the fashion world. The back of the dress featured a black band that gathered right behind her thighs for a more mermaid design to the train. The unexpected back detailing was met with humor as not everyone was impressed with the design.

Cotillard was nominated for her second Oscar for Best Actress in a Leading Role at the ceremony for Two Days, One Night but lost out to Julianne Moore (Still Alice). The French star is a well known Dior loyalists who doesn’t shy away from the fashion house’s more cutting-edge styles. She has been the face of Lady Dior since 2008 and regularly wears the brand to events.

The Oscar-winning actress’ next big project is playing Lady Macbeth in the new film Macbeth directed by Justin Kurzel (Snowtown) and also stars Michael Fassbender and David Thewlis. The movie is set to be released later this year.

To get Cotillard’s fresh look, unfortunately with out the elastic band, check out this dress by Neiman Marcus. The delicate white dress is made of lace and features a tight silhouette, an open back and a scoop boat neckline. This piece is less dramatic but still elegant and attention grabbing. The open back will give you a more contemporary feel without being too revealing. Complete the look with a black metallic clutch and classic pumps to add polish to the ensemble.
